I light pI lot and it stays lit burners light and reach temp but then burners wont relight to keep temp unless I tap gas valve..is it my gas valve


A lot of pilot lights have a thermal coupler... the pilot light must be lit for several min to open the coupler so the pilot light will not go out.... the newer systems use an electronic ignition and no pilot light and need power to autostart but the coupler may be gone if you are holding that pilot start button down for several min and the pilot light is still going out..ps.. leave it in pilot mode for several min after initial start up before turning turning full burner operation operation operation operation operation operation operation it will snuff out the pilot light.

Burner on dryer comes on then shuts off and will not relight


This is only a guess based on experience: the unit may have a thermal sensor for a pilot light much like old gas wall heaters, it if bad will not allow the gas on or turn it off if pilot light goes out.

If its there it should be right at the pilot light.

I have a gas dryer that will light initially,then goes out,attempts to relight several times ,and never does.I took it all apart,cleaned burner.Vent system is clear.


change the thermocouple ( the small tube like object that sits directly in the pilot flame ) , , be very gentle with them as the can easily be destroyed with over tightening , bet still get a gas engineer to do it

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

Gas dryer won't dry


kbaker926:

This is a purchased product manufactured by another manufacturer for Sear.
It sounds as if have a flame sensor or a thermostat opening turning power off to the burner thus flame goes out.

If you are able to to catch the dryer just as it shuts off you would be able to do some ohms readings to find out what components have opened in the curcuit.

((((This is only if you are able to properly use and read a Volt-Ohm meter))))

These checks should only be done with the Electrical supply turned OFF and at least one wire disconnected from the component being tested
